I have an app that uses a navigation controller and want to have a preferences view. Typically when this view is brought up, the current view rotates as if the preferences is on the back of that view. I have made this work in a non-navigation controller based app, but am having troubles getting it to work in a navigation based app. I want the entire view including the Nav bar to rotate out. Here is what I'm doing. This code is in the a subclass of UIViewController Code: PrefsViewController *prefsViewController = [[PrefsViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"PrefsView" bundle:nil]; [UIView beginAnimations:@"View Flip" context:nil]; [UIView setAnimationDuration:1.25]; [UIView setAnimationCurve:UIViewAnimationCurveEaseInOut]; UIViewController *coming = prefsViewController; UIViewController *going = self.navigationController; // (I've also tried setting going = self UIViewAnimationTransition transition= UIViewAnimationTransitionFlipFromLeft; [UIView setAnimationTransition: transition forView:self.view cache:YES]; [coming viewWillAppear:YES]; [going viewWillDisappear:YES]; [going.view removeFromSuperview]; [self.view insertSubview: coming.view atIndex:0]; [going viewDidDisappear:YES]; [coming viewDidAppear:YES]; [UIView commitAnimations]; Any ideas?
